The past few years have seen a rigorous expansion of comedy programming on streaming services of all shapes and sizes, but standup comedy is definitely getting its due after years of neglect.

And while that seems like a lot, this total is constantly climbing with new licensing deals and private offerings being added on a regular basis. Even for budding comedy fans, there’s a lot of must see comedy specials to choose from.
